    I'll be seeing my Primare Care doc soon--who happens to be 'primal-friendly'. I'll be seeing him for a recurrent fatigue issue I've had since 1980 (!) -- which is not specifically primal-related --...

    I used coconut oil the first few days--but So Cal was having a heat wave--so thickness wasn't an issue! The end of that first week, I found organic sesame oil for, like, $4.99 at the local Sprouts,...
